    Following the recent Novel Coronavirus outbreak in China, with cases now spreading to different parts of the world, BOMA Canada shared the attached Pandemic Guide, originally prepared in 2003 after the SARS outbreak. Updated in 2018, this guide was created to help property owners and managers prepare and plan for pandemics.

    BOMA International is also working on a response and hopes to publish something in the near future. In the meantime, we hope this guide helps in planning and preparing for the health, safety and security of your building employees, tenants, members, vendors, and guests.
